Free Your Imagination | Card + Bookmark

Hi there! We hope you had a good weekend. Jane is here on the blog today with a gorgeous card and co-ordinating bookmark featuring the stunning inky bird, old book, feather, splats and sentiment from our FREE YOUR IMAGINATION stamp set …which is in our amazing Black Friday sale right now! Have you checked it out yet? Over to Jane…


Good afternoon, and I hope you might have enjoyed some sunshine last week? We have had the most glorious sunny week here in Surrey and the Autumn leaf colour has been spectacular. It really does inspire my making.

Today I am sharing a slimline card and bookmark.

I worked with the Free Your Imagination stamp set, using every stamp in this awesome set:

I added some stenciling using the Lava stencil

and some background stamping with some of the uber useful stamps in Universal. If you don’t have this in your background stamps stash it really is one to have!


universal background stamps | cosmic | star | circle | galaxy



This is what I got up to..

I used one of my A5 size distress re-inker shaving foam backgrounds from my stash and then added the gorgeous new Villainous Potion distress ink through the stencil.



From the card I cut a piece for a slimline card and a bookmark.



I stamped the bird in black Versafine ink and clear heat embossed.



I then added gold heat embossed swirls and stars using the Universal set. I also stamped some of the double rings in the set using red ink. This gave the backgrounds lots of texture and depth.



I stamped the books in blue and also for just the card the open part in grey ink and cut them out.



I also stamped and white embossed the feathers on black card, seen below, and some of the potion pots and the sentiment (seen in the final photos.) I cut everything out, adding some gold ink to the pots and a black mat to the sentiments.



Then it was time to put my designs together.



Here is the finished card.

I really enjoyed making these and creating a card with a matching bookmark always makes such a unique gift.

Imagination | Mixed Media Card

Hello! We have our lovely Macarena here on the blog this evening with a gorgeous mixed media card with lots of layers…



Today’s card is all about our imagination which is endless and powerful.
Let’s spread the winds of your imagination and create.
I used some Visible Image stamps listed below.




I love this soft and light background made by stamping the feathers randomly with the same color of ink (distress oxide pumice stone) as the base color.






Stamps used:


 eye stamp | collage | backgound      inky bird | stamp | book | feather


Have a lovely day!




This is a fantastic card, we love the subtle pastel tones and the gorgeous layers. Thank you Macarena ♡
